After a lot of hard work and negotiation, WASDA is today pleased to announce the official racing schedule for the 2021/22 season!
With last season seeing an increase in competitor numbers, including no less than nine rookie drivers, and this season looking to be similar, the time is right for Speedcars to really put on a show and the fifteen night calendar should allow them to do just that!
The season kicks off on the 23rd of October for the now annual Powerpalooza event at the Perth Motorplex, in what will be the first of twelve of shows at the venue for the season.
These shows include three blue ribbon events: the 5th John Day Speedcar Classic on the 4th of December, the 50th Annual New Year Speedcar Derby on the 2nd of January and the 74th WA Speedcar Championship which will be decided on the 19th of March.
Other shows at the venue include the annual Christmas Cup in December, an opportunity to support both World Series Sprintcars and the Australian Sprintcar Title in February, plus the exciting legends night in March.
WASDA has also made the decision to incorporate its own ‘Legends of WASDA’ night this year, which comes about as a renaming of the Laurie Matthews Memorial: ensuring that we are not forgetting where the race started and why, nor the history of the race, but ensuring that we can further pay tribute to all those legendary drivers who have proudly represented WASDA over the decades.
This blue ribbon, ‘Legends of WASDA’ event will be held at the Geraldton City Speedway on the 6th of November, which will actually be their opening show of the 2021/22 and will be sure to attract good competitor and crowd numbers.
This event will also be the opening round of the Country Series, with further rounds scheduled for Moora Speedway on the 11th of December and Bunbury Speedway on the 5th of February.
We are set for another great season and can’t wait to get back out on track, so stay tuned for further updates as the season opener draws closer!
